The PupGo Portable Indoor/Outdoor Pet Lawn is an easy to use, easy to clean dog toilet that provides pets with a lawn-like feel that they can use day or night, indoors or out, at home or on the go. It is the perfect toileting solution for pets in apartments or where access to grass is limited. It is great for dogs that don’t like to go out in the rain, or dogs that spend a lot of times indoors plus its perfect for dogs that holiday on boats, especially around the Hauraki Gulf or Bay of Islands where many of the islands are prohibited to dogs.
The PupGo is suited to dogs of all ages and its low profile design makes it easy for puppies and elderly dogs to walk on and off without any significant step up. Good for post op dogs too who may need assistance going to the toilet while in recovery.
PupGo is perfect for toilet training puppies. The grass texture of the PupGo makes transitioning your puppy from toileting on his PupGo to outside on the lawn a breeze too.
Cats also enjoy using PupGo, the short, self draining grass provides a litter box lawn without the nasty tracking and the ongoing costs of buying litter or the hassle of dispose of it.
The PupGo Portable Indoor/Outdoor Pet Lawn is made up of a rigid ABS plastic base with integrated raised domes that hold the faux grass mat up away from the base allowing fluids to drain through freely, keeping the grass dry for multiple uses.
The tray has been designed for outdoor use, to suit New Zealands harsh weather conditions and to minimise any warping when left in the hot sun. Made from 50% recycled, reground fiber, the PupGo tray is strong you can walk on it, one has even been run over by a car with only very minor scraping and was fine for use. So whether your dog is 2kg or 50kg the PupGo won’t crack, warp or dent.
The grass is purposely designed to be self draining and allow fluids to seep through, keeping the surface as dry as possible for your pet throughout the day. It is durable and long lasting. With regular cleaning your PupGo grass should last for around 2 years plus.
We have extra grass available should you ever need a replacement. If the PupGo is your dogs main toilet, or multiple dogs are using the same PupGo, we recommend having an extra mat at the ready so you always have a clean grass to pop down when the other is being washed.
Cleaning is easy, simply remove any solids and either flush down the waste system or dispose of in the rubbish. Drain liquids from the tray and rinse both tray and grass with fresh water and a mild eco friendly detergent, air dry - it really is that easy. Don’t worry if the grass is not completely dry when you put in back down for your dog to use, the excess moisture will drain to the tray below. Click here for more cleaning information.
Many dogs take to the PupGo instinctively, especially puppies but some will require a bit more encouragement. If you have taught your dog all its life not to toilet in the house and now you are saying it is ok, this can be confusing for them, so it can be best to start them off using it outside or where they would normally toilet.
For puppies, introduce them from day one and keep it near to their crate or where they will sleep in the beginning. Mark Vette, Animal Trainer and Behaviourist has some good training tips for puppies, click here to visit Marks website for more information.
If you are planning to use the PupGo for travelling or boating, its a really good idea to get your dog use to it before hand. The more comfortable they are using their PupGo in familar surroundings the more likely they will use it elsewhere.
We do include some training tips with your PupGo to get you started. Remember patients, praise and reward work well when teaching your dog anything new.
